Fairfield-Suisun closes all schools for rest of week due to fires

Fairfield-Suisun closes all schools for rest of week due to fires”

The Atlas Fire continued to burn in Solano County Wednesday morning, moving closer to Solano County communities.

Officials said the area is expected to enter a "critical" weather event beginning at 11 a.m. with "volatile and gusty" winds. Tuesday evening, it was expanded to include Gordon Valley, Williams, Lambert and Clayton roads.

In Fairfield, Suisun Valley and Green Valley roads - lined with vineyards and homes - were closed to the public and thick with smoke.

Due to continuing poor air quality and the unpredictability of fires and wind in our area, we have made a decision to cancel classes and all student activities Thursday, October 12th, and Friday, October 13th, 2017, for ALL schools in the Fairfield-Suisun Unified School District.

At 3 p.m. Tuesday, the closure at Rockville Road and Green Valley Road became a hard closure, with residents no longer allowed to pass through, according to the California Highway Patrol. Deputies were reported evacuating the area. It wasn't immediately clear how many people were affected by the later orders.

The Solano Community College has opened its door as an evacuation center, and the Solano County Fairgrounds is taking in larger animals.
